Stonehill College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Stonehill College provided a variety of opportunities in the classroom and outside. Being in a close community was extremely beneficial. Science labs were well run and provided great hands on experience. The professors are all very passionate and professional.
Attending Stonehill College was a dream I had when researching colleges during my junior year of high school. A "financial reach school" for my family (as I am one of six), I was preparing myself for other options. I was thrilled when offered a substantial academic scholarship. Stonehill College was the perfect fit for me - small class sizes, easy access to professors, and an abundance of interesting core and elective classes. In addition to having a beautiful campus, Stonehill College has a state of the art library, and offers exciting and career minded extracurricular activities. I became very involved in campus life and took advantage of all the opportunities that would enhance my career that the school had to offer. I became a Resident Assistant, a member of the Psychology Society and was elected President of the Marketing Management Club. Involvement in all of these activities matured me and greatly enhanced my leadership and organizational skills. I worked hard and graduated with a 3.4 cum laude and 3.5 accounting cum laude, my major. This opened the door for me to be offered an academic scholarship for my masters degree in accounting at Bryant University where I am currently in attendance. I applied for and accepted an internship this past summer with Ernst & Young, one of the "big four" accounting firms in the country. Ernst & Young executives were very impressed with my achievements at Stonehill College and the exceptional manner that it had prepared me for a career in accounting. Many interns from other colleges across the country were rejected over the course of the summer. Thanks to my education and experiences at Stonehill College, I was offered a contract of employment at Ernst & Young upon my graduation from Bryant University in the spring of 2017.
My experience at Stonehill (class of 2009) was less academically rich than other students at similarly sizes schools. It seemed that most of tuition was spent on landscaping and the endowment while very little was spent on providing a proper academic experience. However it seems the administration is making progress on correcting this imbalance.
Stonehill is a smaller school which allowed me to make lasting personal relationships with professors. I worked closely with faculty on my senior thesis research project which helped me gain valuable experience in my field.
Stonehill is a great small campus to spend four years. It has very strong academics, a tremendous student body, and dedicated faculty. You develop great relationships with your professors, further enriching your academic experience. There is such a close-knit community to the campus that lends to life-long friendships made.
